The Sunday Escape:
This Sunday the Pop Fugitives will be joined in the studio by the organisers of the newly renamed "The Week". It's still a week long celebration of all manner of genres of music, including hip hop, metal and prog, plus a tour of huge variety of venues around town, including Ping Pong 129 Gintoneria and The Hub, it's just got a new name. Dates are April 15th to 21st this time round and tickets are still a bargain.
They'll also be choosing their album of the week and no doubt finding they run out of time to play all the new releases, particularly if they get round to playing all the intriguing choices making their way into the National Recording Registry in the US this year!
Last, but by no means least, they will of course be eating biscuits.(Sunday 9.30am-1pm)
On Monday's Backchat, the big handout. The Government plans to give HK$4,000 to more than 2.8 million people who were left out of the relief measures offered in its budget. The initiative will cost the government around HK$11 billion, and the payments will be made via the Working Family Allowance Office. Do you support the plan? Why the change of heart? Was it down to external pressure, and if so, from whom? Is it a model for future budgets as a way to reach and help n-nothings? Is it all part of a softer approach for the administration, along with the reconciliation (and donation) with the Pan-Dems and more flexibility in putting controversial projects lower on the Legco agenda? Call with your take - our number is 23388266 or you can email email@example.com. After 9.20, China's response to Trump's tariffs.
This Saturday morning (24/03/18) at 8.30, Anna Fenton presents the second in a five-part series, Hooked, which looks at the growing issue of addiction in Hong Kong - from alcohol and illegal drugs to social media, internet pornography, smart phones and tablets (dubbed “process addictions" because like gambling, users get an effect without actually ingesting a chemical). Hear how the internet is providing a fast forward button to addiction, find out what addiction really is, what it’s not, how to tell if you’ve got it, and what to do and where to get help if you’re ... Hooked.
This week, addicts tell their stories.
